Easy place to meet friends

Staff are always friendly and helpful. Go early and eat before going to a movie with friends. The Sangria taster was appreciated by all who order it. The fist taco were delicious. The rib plate was very large

I have been here more than a few times. The last on was a few weeks ago. It is always busy and it is always good. The wait staff is anything but lazy and the food was great. I can't tell you about the bar other than the beer is cold I didn't get any mixed drinks because they have... More

Visiting for first time. Brought Mom for her 90th birthday. Staff is uber-friendly! Attention to detail and thoughtfulness. Delicious fresh salads, sandwiches, soups, pizza. Dietary restrictions no problem. Generous portions, great prices. Busy atmosphere, casual, outdoor patio for pets. A little noisy but we were given a quiet booth upon request. Thanks for a fabulous lunch and celebration!

Lazy Dog Cafe had a great selection and the service was incredible. We received a complementary flatbread appetizer because we were first-time customers. We also enjoyed the beer sampler. Great lunch place!

Lazy Dog Café had a lot of selection for food. The staff was friendly. It’s connected to a mall so plenty of parking.

Great service and really good food. Usual type of food but well presented and a good amount! The building is beautiful with large wooden beams that all sets the scene for a great evenings meal.

Pretty good selection of things to keep most anyone happy. The service at the counter/bar is very good! The wait time can be a bit extreme if there is a new movie out. But aside from that, it's right next to Muvico and is a great place to grab a bite before/after the flick. Also a nice happy hour hang... More

Excellent food, excellent staff. Asia, our bartender, made the evening really special. My wife had chicken/Caesar salad, I had the Kung Pao chicken wok bowl. Very tasty LD brews as well.

Been here several times. Love the food. This time we parked early for fireworks and the place was relatively slow. Great drinks, patient staff (we had a large party with several kids), loud party atmosphere. Great experience.
